reviewed this wine as follows:

Cépage: 100% Chenin blanc
Code #: 11154216 (SAQ)
Prix: 25,55$
Servir: 10-12° Celsius

Le Château de Varennes est l'un des quatre domaines faisant partie des Vignobles Alain Château (3 en Val de Loire et 1 à Bordeaux).

Au cœur d'une petite appellation en Val de Loire, le Château de Varennes a 7 hectares et produit des vins de haute gamme à partir du cépage traditionnel de la région, le Chenin blanc. Son terroir est de type schisteux d'ardoise gris-bleu. On y pratique les vendanges manuelles, de faibles rendement d'environ 40hl/a, l'élevage sur lies fines en fûts de chêne de 400 litres pendant 10 à 12 mois.

Notes de dégustation:

La couleur jaune doré clair annonce un vin avec une belle extraction de matière. Son nez, riche et complexe a des notes de fruit mûr (pêche), de fleurs blanches et minérales (sylex) dans son registre. On n'a pas souvent l'occasion de boire des vins blancs avec une bouche souple et grasse comme le propose ce vin. Il a suffisamment d'acidité pour demeurer malgré tout rafraîchissant. Sa finale, longue et tout en finesse, clos l'expérience en beauté. Capable de vieillir au besoin 4-5 ans. Fruits de mer, volailles aux fines herbes, plats légèrement crémés lui siéront parfaitement. De la classe à prix raisonnable.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
